About this Item

12mo, pp. 182+ 12pp of adv. Bound with a frontispiece and 3 plates in rubbed contemporary calf. 1834 adv leaf tipped to end papers. St. Clair p. 521. With the death of Mary Wollstonecraft, William Godwin found himself not only bereaved, but also the widower father of two children: Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin (Later Shelley) and Fanny Imlay. His marriage to Mary Jane Godwin added three more. The Godwins started the M. J. Godwin publishing company to support their large family. St. Clair notes: Within a few years M. J. Godwin and Company had one of the strongest lists any children's publisher could wish to advertise[p. 292]. Godwin, Mary Jane, Mary Shelley and others within Godwin's circle provided the texts. Authors included Hazlitt, William Mylius, Eliza Fenwick, Lady Mountcashell, and the Lambs. While scholarship would suggest that these books were most popular, they are surprisingly rare in the trade. With the demise of the Godwin imprint, the books coninued to be issued under the names of Baldwin & Cradock. Bookseller Inventory # 48592
